Under the hood is the 312 CI V-8 engine producing 270 HP thanks to the twin 4-barrel carburetor option. Not only is it quicker than the average Thunderbird, but it’s equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and power windows. It’s Thunderbirds like this one, with all these amenities, that exemplify Ford’s idea of producing a sporty, personal car with luxurious optional features over a pure sports car. The concept came about after Ford executives attended the Paris Auto Salon at the Grand Palais in 1951 and were impressed by the luxurious, sporty offerings available. As production neared in 1954, a drawing was held to name the new car; several Ford employees dropped their ideas in a box and the winner would receive a handsome monetary bonus.
